Could Davon House return home to the Packers? There is mutual interest between Green Bay and the cornerback, according to ESPN.com’s Rob Demovsky (Twitter link). Already, the Packers have reached out to his camp.
House spent the first four years of his career in Green Bay before signing a four-year, $24.5MM deal with the Jaguars in free agency. This week, the Jags cut him in order to save $6MM against this year’s cap.
The 27-year-old (28 in July) shined in a reserve role while with the Packers. When he first joined Jacksonville, he ascended to a larger role and started in all 16 games. Then, in 2016, he was sent back to the bench as Jalen Ramsey and Prince Amukamara held down the starting spots.
After finishing near the bottom in passing yards allowed last season, it makes sense for the Packers to explore every possible upgrade in the secondary. Their familiarity with House could quickly lead to a deal.
